My children have way too many toys they are all in excellent condition but I really need to downsize most places in my area don't accept used toys even though they are brand new. My main issue is stuffed animals some still have tags and are super clean and adorable and I have no clue what to do with them. They are all in plastic bags inside storage containers at either my house or my mom's. I wouldn't have a problem if it was just a few but I'm talking possibly over 200 all of them are like new. What should I do trash them? Sell them? Has anyone had luck selling stuffed animals at yard sales? I don't know any other children to give them to and the donation places are over run with them . Any advice?

I am not sure what to do with stuffed animals. I would hate throwing them away as well. Maybe load them the car and drive around to local elementary schools, pre-k programs and day cares and let them browse through and take what they could use?

I kept the stuffed animals. I can't let them go. The others, I gave them away.

I think you can make a sale or give away to those who have kids.

I think you should try and sell some and the rest drive to elementary schools, daycares, and preschools and donate them their. I am sure they can use them for play or even as prizes. Good luck!
